I hope you've enjoyed a journey back in time
Especially the odd rhyme
We`ve delved into our parkrun history
Initially as Toyah once said,it`s a mystery
All our parkrun run report archive is now up to date
But unfortunately,adding the next one will have to wait.
Next Saturday,season 3 of parkrun interviews will start
We have 3 already and they are all very good
If you would like to be a part of it, check out the questions on the website
There is nothing to scare you,or give you a fright.
That`s enough,its time for the last historical/missing run report.
Wait! Is that Sally Gunnell at the finish funnel?
No,but what an ending that would have been!!!
Hello and welcome to the final historical run report ,the 4th June 2016,when my brother was still the younger side of 50 and a certain East Midlands based football team hadn`t yet decided to go with a non scoring approach to attacking play.We had 248 of you taking part on that glorious summer day with 17 volunteers scaring the squirrels with their loudness and musical musings,
Our first finisher (male) was again Phil Langan of Wirral Ac, who ran a 15:47 new pb this week. Then it was Joe Boden of Wallasey AC,also with a new pb of 16:29 and Peter Bird of Wallasey AC in a time of 17:29.
Our first finisher (female) was Katie Bagley with a new pb of 19:46 (12th),then Helen Stansfield of Wallasey AC in 20:13(23rd) and Jennie Langston of Village Road Runners AC in a new pb of 21:27(34th)
Our final historical time/date is 19:46/1946/quarter to 7ish. The League of Nations had its final meeting until it became the Nations League a couple of years back. The United Nations held their first meeting.UNESCO was created and Derby County won the FA Cup,beating Charlton Athletic 4-1.
